This is just a quick update to explain why I haven’t been posting the last few days. My laptop’s wireless card, which has been slowly dying for some time, finally started really going out. The good news is I wound up having an opportunity to pick up the new computer I’ve mentioned, so I was out of town doing that on Thursday. Unfortunately it wasn’t up and running in time for this week’s Beyond the Veil, so I missed that, too.
Since then (other than working!) I’ve been getting everything set up, downloaded, and transferred over, and I’m hopefully near the end of that part. I’d forgotten the joy of tracking down save files, re-downloading mods, transferring over my scripts… I really can’t complain though, it’s all towards a great end goal!
I was able to pick up two monitors thanks to a sale, and you know what that means…streaming sometime soon(tm)!!! I’ll be announcing on Twitter and Facebook once I’m ready to go, otherwise my Twitch channel is at twitch.tv/darkgryphon42. I am super excited to start up again, and just in time to get a jump on Extra Life!
Speaking of Extra Life, I will also be doing the final edit on my article for the Extra Life Community website this week, and will post a link when it goes up. I may be writing more for them at another time, I’ll keep everyone posted on that.
That’s about all I’ve got for now. I spent last night in awe of being able to play The Secret World on higher graphic settings. I thought the game was gorgeous on low, now it blows my mind! After gaming on the same laptop for 5 or 6 years, it’s incredibly nice to have so much more screen real estate and a system that isn’t going to freak out running my favorite games. (Also, ignore the mess, I still need to find places for all the things I used to keep on my desk! :P)
